iPad Air 2, iPad Pro & iPad Mini 4 – The most Preferred Gadgets of Present Times

Posted by | CategoryIpad | Date 26 October 2015

Earlier it was not all about the new iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S Plus. Apple had also announced a major segment of the iPad line with all new iPad Pro and a significantly upgraded iPad mini. Expectedly the result is far more convolutes iPad segment up than before, so let me help you to work out the differences and let you know the major ones.


Size: Large, Medium and Small


The evident fact of variation in the modernized kind of the iPad segment is their size, dimensions are as follows:

 IPad mini_4iPad ProiPad Air 2

  • iPad mini 4 Dimensions: 8X5.3X0.24 inches (203.2 X 134.8 X 6.1mm) and it weighs approx. 0.65/0.67lbs (298.8/304g) for both cellular and non-cellular.
  • iPad Pro Dimensions: 12X8.86X0.27 inches (305.7X220.6X6.9mm) and it weighs approx. 1.57/1.59lbs (713/729g) for both cellular and non-cellular
  • iPad Air 2 Dimensions: 9.4X6.6X0.24 inches (240X169.5X6.1mm) and it weighs around 0.98/0.96 lbs (444/437g) for both cellular and non-cellular versions.

The iPad pro has practically same massive dimensions as a MacBook pro Melbourne. This explains the reason behind its popularity. People are simply in love with this model.


Impressive Displays but are lacking the 3D touch


Of course the reason for the varieties of display sizes is for the three distinctive iPad Screen Sizes they are as follows:


  • iPad mini 4 display dimensions: Diagonal: 7.9 inch, multi touch display screen, LED-backlight, 2048 X 1536 resolutions with pixels regulated at 326 ppi, coated with oleophobic ceramic.
  • iPad Pro display dimension: Diagonal – 12.9 inch LED-backlight, Multi touch display screen, 2732 X 2048 resolutions at 264 pixels per inch, Coated with oleophobic ceramic.
  • iPad Air 2 Display dimension: Diagonal: 9.7-inch, LED-backlight, Multi-touch Display screen, 2048 X 1536 resolution regulated at 326 pixels per inch and coated with oleophobic ceramic.

Amazingly, none of these three add up any kind of 3D support, as the pressure sensitive screen technology has been involved in the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. This is perhaps the most surprising for the iPad pro as the apple touts 3D Display enabling a much richer iOS experience and with Pro, the device has been deemed to be productivity focused.


Experts say that, the iPad will perhaps upkeep the all new “Apple Pencil” stylus which will offer single pixel sensitivity and recognition for to contact pressure. It can easily be changed through a lightning port inside the Pencil’s cap, but this really doesn’t make the stylus as wide as an iPad Pro and it will never be cheap whenever it goes for sale in the stores in November, the projected cost of this pencil is $99.


Let’s discuss inputs latter, as the iPads have features like extremely high resolution display, you would have noticed that only iPad mini 4 is the gadget which has achieved the 326 ppi density of threshold, as apple’s objective was to install “retina display”.


Performance – The Largest one is the Fastest One

But obviously these models will have diversions in their horsepower too, please have a look which one is viable for you:


iPad mini 4: CPU: 1.3x faster, A8 second-generation chip with 64-bit architecture, M8 motion coprocessor, Graphics: 1.6x faster compared to A7.

iPad Pro caries: CPU: 2.5x faster, Graphics: 5x faster if compared to A7, M9 motion coprocessor, A9X third-generation chip with 64-bit architecture.

iPad Air 2 caries: CPU: 1.4x faster, A8X second-generation chip with 64-bit architecture, M8 motion coprocessor, Graphics: 2.5x faster if compared to A7.


Although the iPad Pro is the only model to get the latest A9 Series of the chipset and the “X” Variant is much faster than the standard A9 fitted inside the iPhone 6S plus and iPhone 6S. It must be therefore more than powerful enough to handle all your needs for approx. 3-5 years. MacBook pro Melbourne


Cameras – Lacking in Functionalities

Apple usually continues to offer out-dates iPhone camera technology in its iPads. For some it is inadequate as all the replicas generally use the iPhone 5S optics. Rear Camera: 8MP Photos, 1080p Video, and Front camera: 1.2MP Photos, 720p Video.


So it will not be wrong to say that these gadgets rule the market and the most likeable gadgets of modern world.
